statement of faith

I am in the process of putting together a statement of faith for this blog so that there is no question as to what I believe.  For now, here is where I would like to start, since it will take some time to say exactly what I want to say.

“Question 1. What is thy only comfort in life and death?

Answer: That I, with body and soul, both in life and death, am not my own, but belong unto my faithful Savior Jesus Christ; who, with His precious blood, has fully satisfied for all my sins, and delivered me from all the power of the devil; and so preserves me that without the will of my heavenly Father, not a hair can fall from my head; yea, that all things must be subservient to my salvation, and therefore, by his Holy Spirit, He also assures me of eternal life, and makes me sincerely willing and ready, henceforth, to live unto him.”  ~  Heidelberg Catechism
